Saint Anselm College has enhanced its emergency notification system to include a text messaging service that works in concert with an outdoor siren and public address system, as well as, broadcast college voicemail and email messages.
The new text messaging system will relay emergency notifications to a cell phone or personal e-mail account. With this system, the college’s Office of Safety and Security can notify the campus community of an emergency, provide instructions on how to proceed, and announce when an emergency has ended. All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to sign up for this service.

Public Address System
For those who are not near a computer or cell phone when a crisis occurs, the college also has also installed a siren and public address system. This outdoor system is capable of alerting people on the quad, athletic fields, the New Hampshire Institute of Politics, and anywhere else on campus that an emergency is occurring. Through the public address system, college officials can announce instructions and let the campus know when all is clear.
